Read this article by Jeffry Smith: Below are excerpts
"On May 19th, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) called on "Physicians to educate their patients, the medical community, and the public to avoid GM (genetically modified) foods when possible and provide educational materials concerning GM foods and health risks."
"World renowned biologist Pushpa M. Bhargava goes one step further. After reviewing more than 600 scientific journals, he concludes that genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are a major contributor to the sharply deteriorating health of Americans."
"In lab studies, twice the number of chickens fed Liberty Link corn died; 7 of 20 rats fed a GM tomato developed bleeding stomachs; another 7 of 40 died within two weeks. Monsanto’s own study showed evidence of poisoning in major organs of rats fed Bt corn, according to top French toxicologist G. E. Seralini.."
"The gene inserted into GM soy transfers into the DNA of bacteria living inside our intestines and continues to function.  This means that long after we stop eating GMOs, we may still have potentially harmful GM proteins produced continuously inside of us. Put more plainly, eating a corn chip produced from Bt corn might transform our intestinal bacteria into living pesticide factories, possibly for the rest of our lives."
In addition to what Jeffry Smith wrote, GMO products also change our soil. The genetic inserts contain bacteria never before introduced into our environment. Our intestinal system and our health depend upon the soil-based bacteria strains. When genetically engineered plants are grown in soils, GMOs change the bacteria in the soil....forever...not just for a short time. This is a ticking time bomb. As one scientist said, "Radiation is only for 10,000 years...GE is forever."
But the government wouldn’t let this happen, would they?. Well, as of this year, the person in charge of our food and water is a Monsanto CEO. Talk about the fox guarding the henhouse! Another Monsanto exec is now in charge of global trade negotiations. One of the demands that the USA is making, and which most of the world nations oppose, is that there be no labeling placed on foods to indicate that its is GMO. Why? Because most industrialized nations want people to have a choice and they want GMO labeling. Even thought Haitians were starving, they refused GMO seeds. Wow...they are a lot smarter than we are...or they are not as brain washed.
Bottom line....GMO food that is locally grown, or animals fed GMO grains are dangerous to your health and, especially, to the health of your children. For more info, subscribe (for free) to the following websites. Local grown does not mean GMO free!

I also find it funny (in a sad way) that the American Diabetic Association started pushing artificial sugars once Monsanto started providing funding for it. Of course Monsanto is also the company that creates these artificial sweetener and other gmo food monstrosities.
Midnight t is my understanding that for the most part white table sugar is now made from GMO beets and HFCS (high fructose corn syrup) is made from GMO corn with large doses of residual mercury from its manufacture. Yummy! Give me a double...
